For over two decades the United States has been conducting research and development on the breeder reactor concept - - - an advanced reactor that breeds or produces more nuclear fuel than it consumes. The Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant (CRBRP) is the nation's first large scale breeder designed to demonstrate the feasibility of producing electricity for commercial consumption. This paper reports on the current status of the CRBRP and its important role in meeting the nation's energy requirements.
